Tim Tebow is still one of the most remarkable athletes in American history, but also one of our best Christians.
Not only did he win two National Championships at the University of Florida and not only did he take a losing Denver Broncos squad deep into the NFL playoffs, but he also became a professional baseball player.
You would think he would be revered by everybody, but apparently not. And you’ll never believe who censored Tim Tebow’s latest religious post.
Tim Tebow has never gotten a fair shot. How many times did we see ESPN scrutinize that poor kid when he almost single-handedly took his Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl in 2011? After every single game that he won, they called it a fluke.
It didn’t matter how much he won, they always doubted him.
And they doubted him again when he became a professional baseball player.
It never stops with the scrutinization of one of America’s greatest Christian athletes.
But on Monday, Twitter placed a “sensitive content” warning on a religious-based motivational video that he posted. And then Twitter spun it around and called it a censorship “error.”
In the post, Tebow wrote, “This could be your time. That breakthrough could be tomorrow, or it could be next year. But you have the opportunity to turn however you’re being tested into a testimony. So many heroes were wounded deeply before they were used greatly!”
Following that, he added a video where he talked about all of his heroes in the bible who were “wounded deeply before they were ever used greatly.”
Twitter blocked the video and then they labeled it as “sensitive content.”
Many people called the nonsense censors. WTHuson wrote, “Twitter censors Bible-based motivational video posted by pro-baseball player, Tim Tebow.”
But let’s not mince words here: there was nothing offensive in the contents of the video.
Tebow spoke in the video he posted, “Bible believers, when we look at the Bible, and we see a lot of the heroes, a lot of times they truly were wounded deeply before they were ever used greatly. So maybe you’re going through a time in your life where you feel like you’ve just been wounded greatly. It hasn’t been your year, hasn’t been your day — you just don’t feel like this is your time.”
Does any of that seem harmful? It’s not. In fact, there is nothing harmful about Tim Tebow at all and yet he’s vilified for being a Christian. This is the war on Christianity playing out right here.
Tebow added in his video, “You never know what God is doing with your life. You never know what he is preparing you for. So many times in the Bible, when we look at the heroes, there were times in their life where — if they stopped, if they quit, if they said, ‘No, God, I’ve had enough’ — then they would have missed out on the most impactful, most influential times of their life. We get to trust an unknown future to a known God, because we know how much he loves us he said. We know what he did for us in sending his son. He gave his best for us.”
Twitter later told The Blaze that the censorship was an “error,” but we all know the truth. Tebow is never going to get a fair shot. It’s time that we step up and say that this is not okay. He’s too important to American society to do anything less.
